Highlights and main attractions of Cuzco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu
The geographical and spiritual capital of the Incan Empire and one of South America’s most mystifyingly beautiful cities, Cuzco is one of those rare places where even a two week stay does not feel enough. This is perhaps because of the wealth of intriguing sights that surrounds the city, a gateway to explorations into the fabled Incan civilisation. The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a fertile land fed by the Rio Urubamba, and contains a wealth of important citadels and Incan sites. The undeniably breathtaking and curiously inaccessible citadel of Machu Picchu is the most majestic and revered of the entire Incan heritage.
This is often the focal point of any travellers visit to Peru, usually by trekking the original Inca Trail, or via some of our excellent alternatives.
